The Emergency Care Network is an online community working together to improve the environmental sustainability and resilience of emergency care.
Our Network brings together healthcare professionals, researchers, educators and organisers to share resources, success stories, and generate the ideas we need to move towards sustainable emergency healthcare.
How we started
As emergency healthcare providers, our expertise is in recognising, prioritising and treating emergency conditions. We recognise that climate change is a healthcare emergency and needs urgent treatment to ensure the continued wellbeing of the whole global community.
As part of our efforts to improve the environmental sustainability of emergency healthcare, we established this forum in 2020, as a means of fostering a network of like-minded individuals working together to a common aim.
